Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa can definitely get snow. Don't recommend skiing there because the sharp lava rocks underneath a thin layer of snow would easily tear you up like a cheese grater if you fell down.

/Thin air gives some people health problems up there too. Happened to a friend of mine last time I went

I am genuinely surprised those are both over 13k ft. I'm glad I checked before being snarky.

But I'm in a state with 58 peaks over 14k, so I'm still going to feel smugly superior if you don't mind.


Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are both 30k+ feet if measured from the base on the sea floor.

Looks like there's 7 dairy queens so it's not that farfetched

I think if you get caught in a snowstorm in Hawaii, you should wait at least a couple days before you eat your companions.  It might thaw.
